Martins Wrecker Service

Martins Wrecker Service of Cartersville, Ga., captured the Third-Place Prize for Working Truck in the national Shine ‘n Star Tow Truck Photo Beauty Contest, hosted by Tow Times magazine and powered by Ford Trucks.

The 2003 Kenworth truck with a 2005 Century 50-ton towing unit sports a custom red, white and blue patriotic-themed vinyl wrap with stars and stripes and reflective lettering. This truck also has stainless steel and chrome accents, aluminum wheels, custom storage compartments and a custom light pylon with LED lighting.

The family-owned and -operated company's Kenworth truck was chosen out of 550 entries submitted in five categories this year from around the nation and Canada.

Winning the Shine ‘n Star Tow Truck Photo Beauty Contest adds a notch to Martins Wrecker Service, in business in Cartersville for 43 years serving north and central Georgia, Alabama and beyond. The company fleet handles tows ranging from the heaviest construction equipment and tractor-trailers to the smallest compact cars.

The annual Shine ‘n Star Tow Truck Photo Beauty Contest – celebrating 25 years in 2016 – taps into towing operators’ pride in their fleet, giving them an opportunity to show off the beauty and brawn of their equipment. Like many tow truck operators, Martins Wrecker Service loves its fleet of tow trucks.
